Theme Writing

It’s Mother’s Day so this next tip might seem a little obvious. Nonetheless, there is always a call for stating the obvious because positive reinforcement and repetition tend to maximize results. Write to the theme or holiday of the times.

People are interested in current news and events. They don’t want a rehash of yesterday. They want a new twist for today. Mother’s Day happens every year. Celebrating it can turn into the same old routine. But, if you write an article that puts a new spin on decorations, gifts or recipes for Mother’s Day, and then link it where people can find it easily enough, you are sure to get a lot of page views around this very special time of year.

Every month of the year has some special event or holiday that you can write about. Your job is to come up with something unique and original to share with your readers. Don’t reinvent the wheel here; just dream a little about your perfect celebration of the day. Then write it all out and share it with anyone who might be interested.

To give you an example, here’s a sample of an article I wrote for Mother’s Day.
